VALENTINES DAY HYPE OR HIP?

-- ONTARIO RESTAURANTS RANK THIS DAY IN TOP FIVE

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Food/Beverage Editor, News Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Feb. 12, 2010) - Valentines Day has a rich history dating back hundreds of years. Yet, to millions of people in Ontario it is simply the day of the year for bold romantic gestures towards that one special person in your life.

ORHMA or the Ontario Restaurant Hotel and Motel Association represents the thousands of establishments across Ontario ready to help you make Valentines Day extra special for the one you love.

On February 14th we collectively celebrate Valentines Day. It is not a religious or cultural holiday, or the new day off created by government. Valentines Day is a special day of romantic celebration that every year falls on the same date of February 14th.

ORHMA is reminding all Ontarians to make sure their plans are in place for this Valentines Day. Create a romantic dinner out or get away to a hotel for the night. Make your plans today to avoid disappointment. Ask the manager for suggestions. Remember, if you have a song that needs to be played at just the right moment, or friends to be hidden until you hear a "yes" to your proposal, your neighbourhood restaurant can help make those plans a reality.

The hospitality sector of our economy has been very hard hit by the recent recession. It is said that we are the first into a recession and the last out. ORHMA represents over 11,000 establishments across Ontario employing thousands of workers.

So make this Valentines Day the best yet and help out Ontario's economic recovery at same time. Make dinner or hotel reservations today.

ORHMA dates back to the early 1920s with a proud history of serving the hospitality sector of Ontario for several decades. As the industry voice for the discerning Ontario restaurant, hotel or motel, the ORHMA represents 4,000 members.
